Why Were Ellen Page's Hands Yellow on Leno?

Why Were Ellen Page's Hands Yellow on Leno?

Last night, Ellen Page was as adorable as ever on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

The 23-year-old Canadian actress talked about her home province of Nova Scotia, her new movie Inception, and composting. Yes, she peed in buckets and collected her own urine for composting!

During the interview, eagle eye viewers noticed that Ellen‘s hands were yellow. Her reps aren’t available for comment but any guesses? Too many carrots?

FYI: Ellen is wearing an All for the Mountain Rock Snake Pinky ring.

    Some things you don’t want to know…..

  • lerner

    I saw this looked it up and read it could be many things. Don’t want to spread rumors so I wont post what I read. But I have seen many friends with orange hands from over eating carrots. This is true. But they do not turn yellow.

    If you eat a lot of food rich in beta carotene (the precursor to Vitamin A) you often find yellowing in the palms and soles.

    hahaha that happened to me! and it was for eating too many carrots!

  • Buttercups

    She’s a talented young actress, why is she on JJ?

  • nicole

    that happens to a lot of people who go vegetarian/vegan and aren’t getting the right amount of vitamins they’re missing from eating meat.

  • Times a tickin

    She’s very pretty. I like her acting too.

  • yvette

    I’m suprised no one knows. They put on self tanning lotion on, especially on the legs when they go on tv. She obviously didn’t wash herhands. They turn slightly yellow

    who really cares why her hands are that colour anyway? I think she a brilliant actress! :D

  • poppy

    She had just finished a painting with a lot of yellow in it.

  • emmas

    Why do you care?

  • Alexa

    I would guess self tanner. if she were eating too many carrots, it wouldn’t be just her hands that would be yellowish.

  • Marianne

    There could be numerous reasons why her hands are yellow.

  • MustNotLaugh

    She probably just finished jerking off an Asian guy backstage.

  • jacro

    It might be from those gradual self-tanning lotions. Sometimes, they leave a yellow-tannish color on your hands.

    Or she touched an Asian.

  • lala

    real question is why was she on leno?

  • Shit?

    Perhaps she ran out of toilet paper?

  • MissAnthropica

    Ellen is awesome so clever and talented and sadly rare in hollywood these days amongst women her age.
    . Go Ellen.!!!!!!
    As far as the yellow hands I dont think she self tans shes fairly pale but you know what who cares if her hands were yellow the world wont end I promise you lol

    Jared where leo dicaprio?

  • kASSIE

    Perhaps Ellen is just so funny that she wanted to see a bunch of idiots guess themselves to death about what was up the yellow hands on JJ.

  • MaconGuy2009

    My answer would be from self tanning lotion. It happened to my sister a few years back. If you read the label, they tell you to wear gloves to apply it. if you don’t, it will stain the inside of your of your palms the yellowish orange color that appeared to be on Ellen’s hands. My sister’s hands looked exactly like that. She tried anything and everything to get it off. It just has to wear off. Perhaps, if she’s desperate to get rid of it, there was another very popular pop star who found ways to remove unwanted pigment from their skin…..

My sister’s hands looked exactly like that. She tried anything and everything to get it off. It just has to wear off. It took hers about 3 weeks to wear off because the skin on the palms of your hand tend to be ticker than the skin on the rest of your body. Perhaps, if she’s desperate to get rid of it, there was another very popular pop star who found ways to remove unwanted pigment from their skin…..

    Not to go all insane here but I noticed she’s very skinny and as a psychologist I know skin can turn yellow from carotine, produced by people with eating disorders.

    @MustNotLaugh:
    LOL!!! :D

  • http://twitter.com/haystark Maria

    I’ve seen her hands like that this past days on London and LA premieres. Maybe it’s about self tanning but I bet it’s something about her health. I really like Ellen as an actress and she seems to be a good kid too. I hope she gets well and it’s not some serious health problem.

  • Olivia

    Her hands where ORANGE on Jonathan Ross last week. Fake Tan me thinks!

    I love film enception becuze leonardo

  • http://JustJared Jan

    She’s either just dyed her hair or used tinted suntan lotion.

  • demetrius

    Her hands have been Yellow NOT ORANGE, for a long time now. It’s pretty obvious she is not self tanning. She needs to get herself back on track soon.

    @Tina:

    Stupid. The both of you. (But probably the same person)

  • Tyler

    Her hands were yellow the next night of Ferguson. Weird.

    uhh again someone is feeding the stereotype that canada is freezing…
    for the past month it’s been hotter than L.A

  • Aaron

    Beta Carotene, she probably eats a lot of Fruits and Veggies…

    That would be a most probable reason…

    Another possibility is Anemia …. Which I hope isn’t the case.

    @maria:

    Well I’m sure some people are worried about such a lovely actress, some health issues can cause your skin to turn yellow in areas. I’ll just assume it’s from consuming surpluses of beta-carotene rich foods until further information about it comes up.

    she also had yellow hands a week back when she appeared on Bill Maher
    maybe she is anemic

  • Ryan

    Peeling a lot of pomegranates will turn your hands yellow. Always happens to my wife. Considering Ellen’s into healthy eating, seems like a reasonable explanation.
